Hey, NoeAL! I'm a developer who isn't so good at design. Any interest in having me help supercharge this tool (for nothing but some credit, of course)?

I can't say for sure without seeing how things work under the hood, but I'm thinking we simplify the install process, potentially allow for more than just the 4 lower thirds programmatically, and allow access to logo files and such that aren't found within the one specific folder. I also know how to do StreamDeck plugins.

I can't load an image to replace the default. I am using Linux Mint.

1) I click on the 'Your Logo Here' image in one of the four docked dialogs.
2) A 'choose image' dialog box opens with 'CHOOSE IMAGE on the top.
3) I click on the 'Chose Image' Bar and nothing happens. So I click on the little folder icon next to the bar and a smaller dialog box appears. All I can do is Cancel it or hit Ok.

Which since I can't do anything else are the same kind of nothing.

To make things simple for a test I opened a default image and colored the white overlay part red using Linux gimp. Then I saved it as logo_5.png in the same folder. If I could navigate to it and select it I think it would work. But I can't select it. I made a screenshot of where the dialog gets stuck.
Not sure if this will help you, but I recall seeing in a previous comment that while you can browse your computer for images to add, they actually need to be in the plugin folder, here: \Animated-Lower-Thirds\logos, then you can choose them and they'll show up :)

You're not supposed to see anything in the browser - its just the way the plugin "tricks" OBS to add the plugin to your Sources.

Try going into OBS settings, Advanced,Sources, and either enable or disable Browser Source Hardware Acceleration.. For me, it was on by default and it didn't work, so I unchecked it, OBS rebooted, and now it works

Is it possible to delay the start of the lower third from showing? When I switch to the scene with the LT on it, it immediately starts to animate. I know I can use TouchPortal, or a bot, or maybe another filter to manage the visibility of the browser source in the scene, but it'd be great if I could set a short delay within the LT controls to control how quickly it starts to animate.

Hello NoeAL... Thanks for the great Lower Thirds tool! Am super happy to have it and use it in my broadcasts! And here are a few operator questions... (I am new to the OBS forum so not sure where to put this query, so please someone move to a better place if needed!

??First question... I need to pre-load a long list of names and titles into the tool ahead of live events. Till recently, I've simply added the names and titles into the GUI in the 40 slots available. But then realized I could also modify the configuration text file (modifying "alt-#-name #..." or "alt-#-info#..." as participants changed, or changed order). I just change the names and info for the desired names and titles and reload the file. Along the way, I noticed that the info in the config file seems to be in no particular order. Is that correct - i.e. no particular order? If so, can I just add all my "alt-#-name#..." and "alt-#-info#..." lines (40 of 'em) all together at the end of the config file and will it still work? (Haven't tried it yet 'cause I'm at the beach and my OBS computer is at home! :-))

?? Second question... Ideally, I'd like for someone to operate this tool (especially the name loading & changing) from another network computer - separate from the main computer that's running OBS - i.e. a dedicated graphics person/workstation 'cause I don't have the time or brainbytes or keyboard availability to do it while I'm directing the broadcast. So... can this tool be run from another computer - especially the names/info loading/modifying part of it??

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide, and again, great tool - love it, you da man!

Hello There,

very nice tool so far, but has anyone a way to trigger a specific lower third for scene changes?
E.G. When I change to just face cam, I would like to show Lower third 1 with my name (Float in and out), When I change to the side cam, I would like to flow in and out Lower third 2 with the Side cam name. Back to Scene 1, My name again with Lower Third 1,

Premium would be to trigger not just Lower third slots but memory slots in that lower third

Thanks in advance to anyone trying to help.
